Marriage is marriage, arranged or otherwise. You marry to be together with someone. Sure, you may not appreciate the idea of an arranged marriage, but that doesn't mean there's anything inherently wrong with it.
Your comment makes no sense.
my post makes perfect sense I didn't say there was anything wrong with it ... just saying that I don't find it that interesting because it was most likely arranged and divorce was a massive no... so the only thing here is that they managed to out live alot of people... I was simply giving my opinion in regards to what you said

Coming from a guy who have never lived in India, and only saw arrange marriage happening in TV and media. I feel sad for you guys who havent seen something in real life and lump arrange marriage into force marriage category. Over half of my family and relatives had arrange marriage, and i have yet to see a single forced or unhappy couple. But whatever makes you happy, live in your ignorant bubble. Not everyone fall in love before marriage.
so you are implying that not one arrange marriage is forced? ... I have tons of friends from Bangladesh(yes i know you said india) one who is I am very close to, and I know that the marriages are forced especially on the women, if they marry a white man or go against the families wishes of whom they marry they are shunned from the family... I may not be from side of the world but I still have close ties to those who are..
